From Alderwoman Mosley,
This is a very sad day for all of La Vergne. The city has lost a wonderful friend and the Chairman of our Planning Commission. Mr. John Rutledge passed away yesterday. Mr. John donated many years to serving La Vergne and cared deeply for his city. Mrs. Rutledge is our director of Tax Collection in the city and recently went through back surgery. Please pass this on to our friends on This is La Vergne and please remember this wonderful family in your prayers.
